PatCMO - 3/25/2020 15:10 Your liquid product is 9% sulfer. At 10# per gallon that is .9# of sulfer per galon. At your 4.5 gal/100 rate that is 4.05# of sulfer/100 gal. Not quite even a 1/4 rate of the 17#/100 gal rate that is reccomended. Not to mention you are paying more money for a product that has less than 1/4 of what you are paying for. Patrick
17 lbs of AMS (21-0-0-24S) in a 100 gallons of water provides 3.57 lbs of Nitrogen and 4.08 lbs of Sulfur
His 8-0-0-9S liquid product that weighs 10 lbs/gal used @ 4.5 gallons/100 gallons of water provides 3.6 lbs of Nitrogen and 4.05 lbs of Sulfur.
Close enough to call it a wash IMO.
I'm sure he's paying more for convenience but it sounds like the product that he is using measures up pretty well against dry AMS.
I'm wondering if his supplier is just dissolving dry AMS into water at a high concentration and selling it in shuttles. A 250 gallon cage tank would contain a little over 1000 lbs of AMS.
